Being a competitive athlete himself, Alfred has a wealth of experience, having represented Singapore at the 2005/07 SEA Games. His passion for the sport motivated him to become not just athletics coach, but also a life coach.
As a former Assistant Coach in Sprints and Hurdles, Alfred was in charge of the Youth and Junior Development Team. In this short career of 4 years under this appointment, he has led various athletes to winning both local and International meets.
Daryl is actively training in Athletics and always been a podium finisher in the 100m and 200m sprints event. won the 100m in 2017 POLITE games and his efforts and hard work were recognized by RP, Received the Meritorious Silver for the Sports Excellence Award and also the Most Valuable Player in 2017.
Daryl is now coaching the sprints team in Republic Polytechnic, leading a team a team of over athletes. With his passion and love for the sport, he is confident to bring the sprints team to greater heights, imparting his knowledge as an experienced athlete and also a coach.
Alfred told me that he will work on Jedd’s speed and agility that will benefit him greatly in his Rugby game. After a short training of about 4 to 6 months, I could see that Jedd had improved tremendously in his speed and agility. What he only used to be do, like running pass oppositions who are not as competent or are generally slower or when there was no one there to mark him, he now can easily dodge and create space for himself no matter how competent his opponents were or how “tight” the opposition’s defence could be. If you want your child to develop one of the most important fitness aspect in team sport, which is speed and agility, Reactiv is probably one academy you cannot miss.
Nikita was instrumental in our preparation for the World Ultimate Club Championships 2018. We engaged her with the intent of correcting our running form and increasing our straightline speed, but she wanted to achieve more through the program. She showed her 100% from the very beginning - spending time watching our games live to understand the movements commonly used in Ultimate, and thereafter worked these movements into our drills to ensure that the drills were translatable to the fields. We were also able to chart our progress through the periodical assessments held. Our other teammates have observed that our speed, jumps and agility have improved markedly since, which is a testament to the effectiveness of the program.
Coach Daryl is patient and dedicated coach who guides us step by step with clear explanation for each and every workout he gives. Some of us voluntarily goes for extra training and he will always be there to help us. I am training to keep my fitness level as well as trying to achieve my goal for 100m. It is enjoyable to be training under Coach Daryl, not only does he bring joy during training when the workout is tough he also relentlessly encourage us to do better and point out each individual’s mistakes so that we can improve on it. He has faith in our abilities that we can achieve our goals. He is definitely irreplaceable to us.
Coach Daryl is a selfless and caring coach that sacrifices his own time to train his students even on unofficial training. I enjoy training with him as he is able to make the toughest training enjoyable. When the drills he get us to do seem impossible, Coach Daryl will demonstrate the drills to prove that is it doable. Coach Daryl also ensure that he have a close relationship with the student to know more about the student and can then do what’s best for him/her.
This December will be 1 year since my son started with Coach Fuad. Since young, my son has never been keen about joining group classes in general. Without a doubt, it is Coach Fuad's positivity and motivational style which makes my son look forward to his sessions! During training, exercises are varied, techniques are practiced, and the atmosphere is light-hearted yet engaging. I've noticed Coach Fuad takes the time to answer my son's queries. Whether it is his upbeat self or music playing, he makes training sessions enjoyable. His dedication and positive attitude towards his charges is what coaching should about!
I heard about Reactiv from a Friend whose daughter was training under Alfred. After 1 session of trial, my 2 girls (p4 and p6) went under personal training with Alfred before the national championship this year. He is very approachable and my 2 girls had good fun training under him. He is very professional, skilful and corrected their techniques in running and Long jump. Beside focusing on their techniques, he also believe in building up their core strength through warm up and cool down exercises
I started training under Coach Daryl for athletics and so far my experience training under him has been very beneficial. He is a very observant and knowledgeable coach that is also very dedicated and caring for his athletes. Through his coaching and advise, I feel that I have improved significantly and I am really thankful for his efforts.
We started officially in July 2017 with Coach Alfred, and it has been a great learning journey for Shernice. Coach Alfred has been encouraging and engaging. As there is also training in school 3 times a week during the peak season, Coach Alfred will discourage Shernice from attending extra training with him as he doesn't believe that more means good, as excessive training may lead to Shernice being injury prone. We are thankful for his coaching as Shernice made tremendous improvement in 2018 and had her very first podium finish. Thank you Reactiv, thank you Coach Alfred for believing in Shernice.
With no background in sprinting, she has come a long way under Coach Alfred and is now looking forward to participating in competitions next year. Coach Alfred is very patient with kids and finds ways to engage them and make training fun. This is very important as kids are already stressed in their daily school life and the training gives them an outlet to have fun and interact with others in the training group. But it’s not just about fun. Coach Alfred ensures there is a proper programme for each of the kids, the training is professionally done and the kids are prepared properly and adequately, both physically and mentally, to take part in serious competitions such as SA Series and National Schools games. My daughter always looks forward to training. She is enjoying her track journey with Coach Alfred and Reactiv so far and the training has actually made her more confident and determined as a person. We look forward to her continued development under Coach Alfred.
My children started training with Alfred in mid 2017 and have steadily increased their confidence and physical endurance for athletics. It is enjoyable with Coach Alfred as he is good with teaching the right techniques and interacts well with participants.
Reactiv is a place where I can improve my running technique and form. I can be a better runner in terms of efficiency, speed and endurance . Actually I knew about Reactiv because of a particular Coach of Reactiv, Fuad Bin Idris. I knew him Long before he was in Reactiv. I saw how he has become an athletic individual from Reactiv so I thought what benefitted him would benefit me, thus, I train as best as I can with him.
Coach Fuad has introduced Caedan to the basics of Long Jump and cultivated his interest in it through his encouraging and nurturing coaching style. Caedan feels that Coach Fuad is engaging and is able to relate to the athletes like a Big Brother. He is mindful that the athletes train for passion and growth and not for the sole purpose of competition. This is an important value in parents' perspectives as it goes a long way in sustaining the child's interest in the sports.
When my Primary 4 Son became the ACS Sprint King in 2016, Coach Alfred Sim who was then the Sprints and hurdles Coach in ACSi took him under his wing and trained him for the middle distance Sprints after having tested his strengths and weaknesses. In 2016 my son joined Reactive and has won medals in the 2017 and 2018 Primary school Nationals. The experience has been exhilarating and wonderful as the coach is both firm and fair and knows how to keep the boy interest in Athletics alive.
Coach Jim has trained Ryan in his formative years as a student athlete. Jim is patience and dedicated. He has helped Ryan by building a strong physical foundation to excel and achieve his goals.
I joined reactiv about a month and a half ago. When I joined at that time I had knee pain because of my muscles not being strong enough. Since the first session Coach Alfred was helping me strengthening my knee and at the same time picking up my speed. Coach Alfred was really nice and very helpful giving me tips about running and doing different exercises. After my ten sessions, my knee pain was gone and I picked up my speed/conditioning. Thank you for helping me throughout my summer break.
